Pain in lungs
Oct 7, 2015
Hi all - I have been having pain across back and chest tightness for the past 4 years - had various scans etc nothing shows - except overinflated lungs - I am a previous smoker of 15 years - I have to sleep on 3 pillows to be able to breathe - I cannot tolerate exercise anymore I get breathless, my chest is always tight and have thick plem that I cannot get off my chest. If I am exposed to perfume - hairspray - cleaning products the pain becomes worse and I I become so tired I have to go to bed for 2 days - it is really effecting my life - hot and cold weather make me worse - and smog and humidity make it worse and being near the ocean makes me worse - I really would love to hear any suggestions from anyone -
it always feels like my lungs are going to come out of my back - the pain is so bad that I am on pandeine forte and targin and I am sick of taking lots of medication - I have had ct scans on chest
lots of blood tests
the only test I have not had is arterial blood gas test - do you think it could be early signs of copd or emphysema - that are not showing up - has anyone else experienced this - thanks everyone and I look forward to your feedback
I really need to get a diagnosis and get onto some medication to at least be able to function everyday without any pain
